“Phucket List”

Since my “30 things to do before you’re 30” post is the most popular item on this fledgling blog I thought I’d do another list.

I was at an anniversary party the other night and I told some folks I was going to write my bucket list. One person remarked that they (bucket lists) have a negative connotation, since they imply that you are near –or at least thinking about—your death. I agreed, and decided that instead of writing a “Bucket List”, I’d make a “PhuketList”: As in all the things that I need to just say “fuck it!” and do:

Travel to New Zealand

Fly on Air Force One (this one may prove difficult to just say “fuck it” and do)

Attend a Super Bowl

Go to a World Series Game


Milk a cow

See the Grand Canyon

Travel to all 50 states (I’m about halfway there)

Step foot on all seven continents (I’ll forgive myself if I don’t make it to Antarctica)

Enjoy a meal at a Michelin 3-star restaurant

Write a screenplay

Get it bought

Perform a standup routine (preferably opening for my best man)

Play in the World Series of Poker

Visit Harry Potter Wizarding World (laugh all you want, remember: I’m gay?)

Own a Viking stove

Drive a car on a racetrack

Hit a hole in one

Play Augusta National

Break 80 for a round of golf

That’ll do for now. I’ll probably update this post from time to time. Feel free to chime in with your own “Fuck It” lists.

    I like it Jules. Mostly doable, some reaches. And a question: What if Robert Downer Jr. IS your husband?

      Than life would be perfect and I would want for nothing.
